Quite a bit of progress in June. I met my goal of finishing book five in three months (began April 2) with 10 days to spare – and technically more if you want to get picky about it, as I was sick for a week in there as well. I managed to impress myself by finishing early because book five ended up being quite a bit longer than the others have, clocking in at 142,000 words, where the others have been around 90-97,000 words. I also started book six in this time.
So my monthly tallies were about 50,000 for book five and about 15,000 in book six, so a grand total of 65,000 words.
My next goal will be to finish book six before the end of September, but I think I can get it done before the end of August. We’ll see.
Also, I’m into the last edits on book two now and should be getting a proof copy in the next week or two before the release. Watch out for pictures and updates on that.
